Melvins’ Dale Crover To Fill In For Dave Lombardo At Upcoming Fantômas Show

Fantômas have recruited Dale Crover (Melvins) to fill in for drummer Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, etc.) at their upcoming show with Tool, Primus, Clutch, Melvins and The Crystal Method. That concert will take place at the Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA on June 24.

Crover told Rolling Stone the following:

“I mean, it’s somewhat difficult stuff, no more difficult than I’m used to. And that record that we’re doing in particular is their more or less straightforward record. … I’m pretty sure we’re doing [2001’s] ‘Director’s Cut‘. I hope so! Otherwise I might have to learn a bunch of songs I don’t know.

I’ll just have to listen to the record a couple times and it should come back to me no problem – look back and see if I have any special notes from Mr. Patton on when to play the maracas and all that stuff.

That stuff’s really fun to play too – I like that record…”
